Dick Tracy Wiki

Mrs. Sweeney (first name unrevealed) was the wife of Mr. Sweeney and the mother of Lug Sweeney. She was a slender woman with light hair.

When her son was suspected of committing acts of sabotage at the local shopping mall, Dick Tracy approached Mrs. Sweeney in an effort to learn more about the family's situation. Mrs. Sweeney explained to Tracy about how he husband's hobby shop had gone out of business and he had taken a job at the shopping mall. After Mr. Sweeney disappeared, Mrs. Sweeney and Lug both went to work at the mall as well. She sold concessions at the movie theater.


  • Mrs. Sweeney was presumably pleased when her husband and son were cleared of charges and returned home, but this was not depicted in the strip.
